The New Forest is the perfect location for a self-catering holiday. There is a wealth of things to do and see in the New Forest with fun filled days out at leading attractions such as The National Motor Museum, Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway, Longdown Activity Farm, Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World and Bucklers Hard.
Vast tracts of unspoilt woodland and heath are home to countless varieties of wildlife and native plants waiting to be discovered by ramblers, cyclists and pony trekkers. Internationally renowned for its free-roaming ponies, donkeys, cattle and other livestock, the New Forest was awarded National Park in 2005.
The New Forest´s atmosphere and traditions stretch back over 900 years. William the Conqueror set aside this incomparable countryside as his own private deer-hunting preserve and many of the unique customs of the area date back to this time. The shores and waters of the nearby Solent provide an exhilarating contrast to the calm of the Forest.
Organised deep sea fishing trips are available from both Lymington and Keyhaven and there is a regular car ferry from Lymington to Yarmouth on the nearby and fascinating Isle of Wight. The historic and bustling towns and cities of Bournemouth, Salisbury, Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth are all within easy driving distance and there are many leisure attractions throughout the area.
The New Forest´s towns and villages such as Beaulieu, Lyndhurst, Lymington, Milford on Sea, Brockenhurst, Burley, New Milton and Ringwood have their own restful charm and make for perfect holidays in the New Forest. Explore delightful narrow streets and then relax in one of the many quant inns or tea houses found throughout the area.
